Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world

There are many ways the Bedlam rivalry games can unfold, but no matter how it happens it usually ends in a win in Oklahoma that held up again on Saturday night as No. 18 Oklahoma took advantage of a strong fourth quarter with 14 points, to get away from No. 1 withdraw 14 Oklahoma State won 41-13 for the sixth consecutive year in the Bedlam series

The Sooners have now won five games in a row after starting 2-1 and have the Big 12 championship game in their sights. Two more games against West Virginia and Baylor separate this team from another trip to Arlington, Texas

Bedlam’s start made it look like Oklahoma was running away with the game The Sooners scored 21-0 touchdowns on their first three possessions, one of which was assisted by a short field thanks to an athletic interception from David Ugwoegbu on The Top Oklahoma State’s -15 defense showed after being burned early for more than two-quarters, however, the Cowboys kept the Sooners at just six points

But then a steady dose of Rhamondre Stevenson paid off for OU from Stevenson, who had been bottled for most of the night, began to abandon larger runs, and ended with 141 yards over 26 runs, which also allowed Oklahoma to be more creative and aggressive The first touchdown in the fourth quarter came on a false back, hitting H-back Jeremiah Hall for a 30 yard score from the backfield The second was a fourth throw from Spencer Rattler to Theo Wease for 31 yards, to finally postpone the game

Oklahoma State’s offense never got underway Quarterback Spencer Sanders was knocked out in the first quarter with an apparent head injury that meant freshman Shane Illingworth was put on duty, but he finished the night 5 of 21 and went for 71 yards and a touchdown over Though the Pokes coaching team were initially careful to bring Sanders back into play, he rejoined in the fourth quarter. By then, it was not too late

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy falls 2:14 against Oklahoma. Here are the takeaways from today’s game:

The Sooners’ ground play was already improving when Stevenson returned from his NCAA suspension against Texas Tech late last month, but he took it to another level Stevenson was bottled as a runner early Saturday but Riley got it blamed for refusing to abandon the run it helped Oklahoma get a big head start, but eventually the 2-yard Stevenson runs became 9-yard runs, and those became chunk-yards

The running game also opened Oklahoma’s offense in more aggressive situations, the first of two touchdowns in the fourth quarter began with Stevenson taking a direct snap before handing the ball to Rattler, who faked backwards and hitting Jeremiah Hall for the touchdown on the second , a Rattler to Theo Wease touchdown, was in fourth and fourth places when Stevenson was very likely. Without booting up the base game, Oklahoma is not pulling back the way it was

I’m not saying Illingworth is a bad player even though he had a bad night but that’s mostly due to Oklahoma’s defense.The Sooners had a disruptive night with four sacks, seven TFLs, four QB rushes, and at least two or three beaten Passes on the border Oklahoma State’s weakness of offense was the offensive line It wasn’t great tonight and Illingworth isn’t the type of quarterback who can play Sanders with his legs, but out of caution, Oklahoma State decided to give him the Not playing for most of the game.I won’t criticize this move – player safety matters – although I wonder what the difference in Sanders’ health was between the second and fourth quarters. Either way, Sanders is better equipped to cope with Arms and legs taking up the necessary yards Illingworth just doesn’t give Oklahoma State that option, and it’s difficult when you try n to play from behind

There were two moments in the fourth quarter that turned out to be critical coaching moves. The first was Gundy’s decision to stab a fourth and an eighth at the 39-yard line in Oklahoma, and there were about 12 minutes left of the Pokes were down 21 points, and while the punt worked – a delay in the game penalty helped Oklahoma State pin the Sooners to their 1-yard line – it was still an overly conservative call that was running out of time and Oklahoma State had only 13 points on the board. They had to make up ground. Remember, Sanders was back in the game at this point so it was obvious that Oklahoma State was doing what it thought it needed to do to win. Punting was doing nothing but Oklahoma walked 99 yards and scored a goal to end the game for good. In fact, it was Riley who settled fourth and fourth that ended the game that was a big under retired in coaching

Good watch from @TRowOU on OU radio, those last two possessions showed the difference between Riley and GundyGundy is conservative, meanwhile, Riley goes to fourth and fourth places on OSU 31 and throws the ball in the end zone for TD / p>

CBS Sports has been with you the entire time and has updated this story with the latest state of the game which you can read below

Oklahoma State drives the field but can’t get into the end zone The Sooners touchdown was the dagger, but now it’s actually over

Spencer Rattler is the 4th Oklahoma player for the past 20 years with 4 Pass TD and 1 Rush TD in one game, along with Kyler Murray, Baker Mayfield and Sam Bradford ImageTwittercom / HQh1nicOIC

Sooners try fourth and Rattler ties up with Theo Wease for a touchdown We’re done here

Stevenson breaks a giant run from the shadow of his goal post. Stevenson really has deceptive speed

Listen, the bad news is that you are poking around the Oklahoma area while you’re in the 4th The good news is that it was a great barge

Feels like four-down territory for the state of Oklahoma from now on – at least in Plus Territory

Sanders is back at the quarterback for the Cowboys The first run is a conclusion for a first failure time to catch up

Oh you gotta love @LincolnRiley genius games Idk like you do, but keep going! You are the 🐐🔥

After Oklahoma hits away, he fades in for the touchdown on the fake back pass to Jeremiah Hall That’s the kind of game that can break things up

TOUCHDOWN #Sooners! @ Jeremiah_Hall27 comes out of nowhere for the score! OU 34, OSU 13 (14: 15 / 4Q) #OUDNA picTwittercom / gVwvOusfKR

Oklahoma has really leaned on the run this quarter with Stevenson and Rattler It’s a matter of time before you go
